to be in the first term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do the thing that is barack obama when you sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> piers i do believe the economy is ip pron proving. one of the reasons the economy is improving is that it was brave. it was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that. i believe that gives us a chance to move forward on a series of fronts and further strengthen our economy. we are not losing 800,000 jobs a month anymore. we are gaining them. and that foundation that has been laid it is a foundation on which we can build progress. >> one is i understand that the first
our economy and create jobs and the decisions we have to make in the coming weeks to help that come about. it is part of governing that these issues arise and we have to deal with them. >> this is a question on the fiscal cliff. you say he will not sign any bill that extends the bush cuts. it is highly unlikely that he would get a bill like that. how open is he to the notion that -- in terms of going forward? is he willing them out completely? >> i am giving you a pretty good printers on the president's thinking going into the process that he said it begins with the specific proposal he has before congress, a plan that achieves balance and that allows us to continue to invest in important areas of the economy. he has not been wedded to every detail of that plan. i will not negotiate hypothetical details. i was side speaker banner and say i am not in the position of boxing ourselves and others. he looks forward to the meeting with leaders in congress. and as clear principles fam belief that we can reach a compromise is comparable. it would allow us to address the fiscal cliff challen
situation room". >>> president obama says his re-election proves that americans want action on the economy, not just politics as usual: just days after his victory, he's laying out a framework for compromise with the republicans to avoid $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax hikes in the next year. he says he's open to new ideas, but he warns the federal government can't cut its way to prosperity. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it -- that's how we did it in the 1990s when bill clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while r
the economy. some of you may remember that bill clinton years on the economy were the best they had ever been in american history. it was the same old people that were taking advantage of circumstances that presented itself. that basically -- with a reduced electorate. no, i do not think they have a future. there is a congressman from georgia named paul brown who happens to be a doctor. he thinks that the big bang theory and evolution are works of the devil. you know, that is not the future. go to maryland, go to the maryland suburbs and look at the companies that are making billions of dollars doing genetic research. genetic research is all about evolution. >> are there additional questions? >> i just wanted to ask about when you saw effective black and latino alliances during the 2012 election? >> and the places where there were blacks and latinos living in proximity, all the states where there are both black and latino populations, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservati
majority of them said that taxing the wealthy was a majority of that. there are other issues on the economy. 70% to 20% said that they trusted the economy. that should not be their goal. their goal should be to hit the 40% level that w. was able to do. that will make them competitive. and they need to also created goal for blacks. they cannot conceive 97% of the black vote. start with 12%, 17%, something. they need to make inroads. is unrealistic to say let's go for hispanics. if they can get to the 38% range, they can be competitive. in the same way, we're talking about the democratic problem with whites. >> in 2013, there is a big deal. comprehensive immigration reform was taken off the table. how far does this get you with this next emerging electorate? what else does the party have to do to get back to the kind of numbers that bush saw? >> is a step in the right direction, but it is far from the whole thing. it is basically ronald reagan mindset that says we welcome anyone who shares our values and our desire for lower taxes. bill back and listen to some of ronald reagan's rhetoric. --
with the economy. and make sure we do not go back into a recession. but they do want to stick to their guns. they feel like they are really won the election and not to cave in to the republicans on the upper income tax rate. host: chicago, ill., let us go matt, hi. caller: my comment is this, in order for us to solve this problem, both sides are going to have to experience a pretty significant amount of political pain. from my side, i am a lot of the center, i would like to see texas go up on the wealthy. but at the same time, being from chicago i remember when the simpson balls report came out, and congresswoman should kautsky, she said this is horrible there's no way i will vote for this. and i did not think that was right either. clearly, we are going to have to do something about medicare. i am not in favor of the ryan plan. my overall point is, and unfortunately we have not seen this in the past few years, steve is coming more from the right than from my side, but the overall bank is that both sides are born to half to be willing to take on a significant amount of pain. i hope the will
when our economy is still recovering from the great recession, our top priority has to be jobs and growth. that's the focus of the plan i talked about during the campaign. it's a plan to reward businesses that create jobs here in america, and give people access to the education and training that those businesses are looking for. it's a plan to rebuild our infrastructure and keep us on the cutting edge of innovation and clean energy. and it's a plan to reduce our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. this is even more important because at the end of this year, we face a series of deadlines that require us to make major decisions about how to pay down our deficit -- decisions that will have a huge impact on the economy and the middle class, now and in the future. last year, i worked with democrats and republicans to cut a trillion dollars' worth of spending, and i intend to work with both parties to do more. but as i said over and over again on the campaign trail, we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spendin
with a number of leading economist and political scholars on the economy, national security and so-called fiscal cliff. economists for peace and security and the new america foundation's economic growth program are hosting this panel discussion. this is expected to last to go to early this afternoon. this is live coverage on c-spa c-span2. >> questions of military security, national security, economic security, social security, with the broad questions that we have all been grappling with four, intensely for the last four or five years. we are, strictly speaking, a professional organization. we are not an advocacy or lobbying group. we gather together, professionals working on these questions represent only themselves, and who had the advantage i believe of being able to speak to you with clarity and conviction. eps is also a membership organization. our website is www.eps u.s.a..org. and i would invite all of you who are here and all who may be watching to visit the website. and if you share the goals and objectives of the organization to join us, or to lend us your support. we have a great adv
the entire size of our economy. there will be many who will say that we should confront the first of these challenges by letting the tax rates expire and pushing the sequester off to some other day. there would have disengage in the same short-term temporary policies that has helped put us into this fix. let's have more of the same. let's agree to a drive our economy off part of the fiscal cliff instead of driving it off the whole fiscal cliff and we will call it a day. that might get us out of town but it will not get us out of the problem. and it will hurt our economy. we cannot keep going on like that. we cannot keep setting the bar that low. it is time that we raise the bar. the american people did not give us a mandate to do the simple thing. they elected us to lead. they gave us a mandate to work together to do the best for our country. we know what the best thing is, an agreement that sends the signal to our economy and to the world that after years of hunting on the fiscal challenges we face, -- punting the fiscal challenges we face, 2013 is going to be different. if we wa
contribute a little bit to helping our economy, and the majority of the people who are fortunate and made a lot of money, they're willing to do this. democrats, independents and republican support the direction of the president regarding this fiscal cliff issue. thanks, everybody. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> you just heard senate democrats speak about elections. the republicans will talk about their own election. main senator-elected angus king saying he'd caucus with the democrats. here's what he had to say. -- maine senator-elect angus king saying he'd caucus with the democrats. here's what he had to say. >> good morning. all set. today i'm announcing my decision as to which party, if any, i'll associate myself in my work here in the u.s. senate. before doing so, however, i'd like to outline my thinking on this issue and set out the principles that have guided my decision. in answering this, who will you caucus with question, repeatedly during the campaign -- and i emphasize the word repeatedly -- i
what i said on friday. right now, our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis. so our top priority has to be jobs and growth. we've got to build on the progress that we've made. because this nation succeeds when we've got a growing, thriving middle class. and that's the idea at the core of the plan that i talked about on the campaign trail over the last year, rewarding manufacturers and small businesses that create jobs here, not overseas, providing more americans the chance to earn skills that businesses are looking for right now. keeping this country at the forefront of research, technology, and clean energy, putting people back to work rebuilding roads, bridges and schools and reducing our deficit in a balanced and responsible way. on this last item, we face a very clear deadline. that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes, and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this deadline. and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. to meet with labor and civic leader
term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. that emboldened them to be braver than they might have been. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do, perhaps, the things that barack obama when he sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> well, piers, i do believe the economy is improving. but i want to challenge a bit of your premise, one of the reasons the economy is improving is because this president was brave. it was brave to intervene and save the auto industry, which was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. which again was not popular at the time. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. even though that was an unpopular thing to do. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that bravery and good decisions be
term will be how does he get some kind of bipartisan momentum going, particularly on the economy and this is your wheelhouse right now. you've got some pretty firm ideas about how to prevent the fiscal cliff becoming a reality. tell me about that. >> well, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff. as the nonpartisan congressional budget office said, it will reduce gdp by almost 3% and keep in mind it's only 2% now so that means going negative, going back to recession. they predicted that unemployment would go back over 9% which would be terrible, obviously, and many other negative consequences. so they should do at least a temporary extension so they can buy themselves a little time for the new congress to get organized and new administration to get settled, and then get this thing solved as quickly as possible after that. so with the financial services roundtable, we asked them to bridge over with some extensions but then tackle it. that's going to have to include the president stepping forward and willingness to reform entitlement programs and on the republican side, they'll need to l
important issue was. the economy was way up on top, almost 3/5ths of people said the economy was the number-one issue. the percentage who said that foreign policy was the most important issue was down in the single digits. that is not the driver. foreign policy is usually not the biggest driver. it is worth noting that those voters who said that foreign policy was the most important issue, president obama won that group. host: that made for about 5%. the economy, 59% put that as the most important issue. federal budget deficit, 15%. talk about how the health care law played into voters' attitudes? 18% said it was the most important issue. guest: that is an important thing. almost one in five voters said that health care was the most important issue. the president won roughly three- quarters of that vote. throughout the republican primaries, the issue of obamacare was a huge rallying cry. in 2010, the republicans won some big victories because of anger on the part of conservative voters about the president's health-care law. by the time you get to this election, you see this turnaround were
about, you know, what students get in debt, like that's the biggest problem in the economy? it's crazy. >> there's also an irony here, too, because mitt romney represents the forces within our society who get, if you want to call them gifts, the most gifts. the defense industry, he was prepared to say he will increase the deficit to give you more. the elderly who mainly voted for mitt romney, if you want to look at the apportionment of government spending, get a far disproportionate share. most of the quote, unquote gift if you want to call it that, they're mostly going to the people who voted for mitt romney, red states who are basket cases, wards of the blue states. >> we're not against that. >> jared, final word to you. >> from the very beginning, it always looked to me like mitt romney and his minions looked down at the american economy and decided rich people don't have enough, and i just think that's not the economic analysis that's going to move this country forward. >> absolutely. >> and i'll bet he wasn't saying that when the olympics were asking for gifts from the federal gov

of the fundamental question of the internet economy. >> right, it certainly is and again, no one, even in the children, even in the copa context where we proposed before you collect information online from children you have to get parental consent, we don't think, i mean that doesn't stop advertisements for children. it only stops particularly types of information and advertising it back and monetizing that information and soling it to third parties and using it to advertise to children. all it doesn't say you can't collect certain types of information. that is our proposal. we are taking comments. we haven't made up our mind precisely where we're going to go. >> let's sort of talk broadly about a concept of unfairness. so the ftc has a mandate of enforcing deceptive and unfair practices right? >> right. >> traditionally you erred on the side of deceptive. >> well, you know, if you make a commitment to anyone in this room we will in the privacy content we will protect your data and you don't honor that commitment that is deceptive practice. that is an easy thing to understand conceptua

. if we want our economy to flourish and grow we must live up women's leadership. very important. women in the academic world, in health care, any subject you can name. is more successful, more efficient with the involvement of women. when women came to the polls last week, they registered their support for those who understood the challenges that women face. it is really a remarkable thing. under the leadership of the women standing here, the voices of america as mothers, daughters, and grandmothers will be heard. women are the bread winners for our families. in many cases, the small business owners in our communities. and the workers that will spur our prosperity. they're holding jobs of the office, creating jobs as entrepreneurs and owners. we keep our focus on women's rights and health, equal pay, choice, we also know that women are focused on the same issues all of us are -- the economy, jobs, the future of the middle- class and the national security of our country. they are concerned about fiscal soundness for america because they think about the future. as we move forward to deba
the economy stronger white a set of commitments to finance, a high level of public investments in infrastructure and education and a lot of bipartisan support for that. i think there's a lot of support for doing the obvious things you have to do. you have to pass an extension tax of the amt is very important to do. you listen carefully there's a lot of support for trying to make real progress on the long-term fiscal soundness. there's a lot of benefit in doing that for the economy. how you do that is important. so i think this is a solvable problem and we want to do as much as we can to take an advantage of this opportunity to make some progress in each of those fronts. >> there's one thing about which they're doesn't appear to be a lot of agreement and that is should the bush tax cuts on the overt and hundred 50,000 crowd be extended or should taxes be raised? >> i heard jay carney an hour or so ago say the president will not agree to anything that extends the tax cuts on the upper brackets. that sounds like a line in the sand; is it? >> i do think it's important to start by a
lines for these tax cuts that would cause damage to the economy if they're not dealt with. extending those tax cuts for 98% of the american people would deal with more than half in dollar terms of the impact caused by the fiscal cliff. there are other challenges we need to address including the sequester but congress ought to, the house ought to pass those tax cuts right away because it would send a tremendous positive signal to the american people that in the wake of this election, we can at the very least, come together and convert into law a bill that everyone agrees should become law, republicans and democrats alike, the president included. and we will then continue to work on those issues where we have broader disagreement. and that's where the president has invited leaders of congress to the white house next week. that's why he will be meeting with business leaders and labor leaders and others to get their ideas about how to move forward. he does have his own very specific plan that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion, that does it in a balanced bay and we can invest in research

a stark contrast to the president who wants the federal government to drive the economy. the campaign unfolded slowly as most persons did not know romney. and with all the high tech gizmos these days, it's difficult to get the attention of the folks. so i knew very early that the polling was insignificant and the debates would be the real test. as i said, these polls are interesting but they are not vital because of the debates, the three debates i think really going to the tale. >> i told you earlier this year when you said debates are going to be all important. i said the history shows they are not. >> bill: i'm so happy that you brought that up. can i just -- can i paraphrase barack obama? in the last debate? can i do that? >> of course. >> bill: can you say that a bit louder, brit? that's why i like hume, is he an honest man. as we all know the first debate was a major victory for governor romney. instantly made him competitive. but he did not exactly seize the day. his campaign played it conservative managing romney's appearances tightly scripting his media response. then in the
economy, stronger, healthier economy means more americans working and more revenues, which is what the president is seeking. this framework can lead to common ground. i hope the president will respond today in that same spirit. as i said on wednesday, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> that was speaker of the house, john boehner, talking about the looming fiscal cliche. republicans are ready to sit down at the table with president obam a. but is he prepared to compromise? listen to when he had to say earlier today. >> i want to be clear. i am not wedded to every dedale tail of my plan. i am open to compromise. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 are not asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i am not going to do that. i want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again. and on tuesday night, we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrat independents and a lot of r
on the economy in the first year of this ten-year. that is slowing down the gdp by four percentage points that's kicking us into a deep recession. >> i think everybody's aware of that. i don't think that anybody, whether new members coming in now or whether existing members who have been there for a while i don't think anybody has any illusions of the urgency of this. it doesn't mean it's going to be easy. john boehner has to deal with the problems he had to deal with a year ago in terms of his caucus. it's really important that we are in a place where we're further away from the 2010 victory for the tea party. the members of his caucus that were most difficult to deal with a summer ago, those people were coming off of a huge victory in 2010, now much further down road and coming off -- many got re-elected tuesday but the whole political environment has changed given the success of not just president obama but democrats more broadly in congress. and it does change everyone's incentive structure. there's no one, no one, who is politically well affected positively affected if the country drops i
to tackle the fiscal cliff, an economic mandate that could throw the economy into a tail spin unless democrats and republicans stop it all. house speaker john boehner wants a deal on spending cuts. president obama says that is not enough. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit we have to combine cuts with revenue. >> joining us is jonathan strong. even if tax rates went up on the wealthiest households earning more than $250,000 a year the president, as the president demands, this would actually do almost nothing to reduce the deficit. i look at the joint tax committee report of conscious saying it would reduce the deficit only by 7%. that is 7% out of $1.1 trillion. in many ways is the president's solution more of an illusion? >> he is trying to sell this as a matter of fairness. he seems to be making progress politically on that front. you have a good point. another good question, there isn't any theory this would help the economy. the estimates are it would hurt this the economy. is now the right time for that? people are still hurting out there. >> gregg: the president is
't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier
the only democratic candidate running on a record of a weak economy and debt crisis that we face and still win. yet, he did. they did very many things that were right. you can point to a couple of things with mitt romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and over again. the democratic voters were dispirited and they were not feeling enthusiastic about the campaign. it was the conservatives and republicans fired up and getting ready to go. the notion was, he would h
